We create coaching communities that change lives.
Elevate is a coaching and mentoring charity that works with young people to improve their self-esteem, raise their aspirations and help them build skills, whilst reducing their levels of disengagement with education and society.
We currently operate through several projects to affect change in our community, and offer further bespoke services when needed.
'Can Do' Project
An early intervention project, supported by ‘The Big Lottery Fund’, aimed at young people who are at risk of not attending secondary school, due to lacking confidence or ongoing difficulty with the transition process.
‘Kick London’ works with over 20 schools throughout London and by partnering with Elevate are expanding their provision across throughout the Vale of Glamorgan, targeting the primary sector.
A simple to deliver course targeting year 9 and 10 boys, as they grow and experience significant changes in their worldview, along with formation of their attitudes and opinions that form the basis for their adult lives.
Just some of our results
This is what some of our participants say about themselves following participation in one of our projects. These results are often reinforced by educational staff, who similarly report significant differences in attitude and effort of program participants.
